THREE ACES WANTS A BLACKOUT!
A specialty menu featuring the darkest food and drinks of the season
The sun is setting early, the sky is grey, and Halloween is around the corner, it’s the darkest time of year and Three Aces is celebrating; with a BLACKOUT. Help us welcome the darkness, rock and roll style, with a specialty menu featuring the darkest of ingredients, paired with the blackest of beers, ink-colored cocktails, low lights, and wicked metal music. Bring on the BLACKOUT!
Executive chef Matt Troost has created a limited edition menu featuring the darkest of seasonal ingredients. Sample BLACKOUT menu items include: Arancini made with squid ink risotto, mint, and bolognese sauce; Mussels steamed in black beer, served with boudin noir, butternut squash, and chili de arbol; and Duck Breast with beluga lentils, confit cipollinis and black kale.
No specialty menu is complete without the perfect drink pairing. Ask for a “dark traveler” made with Journeyman Rye, Graham’s 20-year tawny, and black walnut bitters. Or sample any of the following BLACKOUT beers: Allagash Black, Breckenridge Vanilla Porter, Ska Brewing Mole Stout, Uinta Black Lager, or Great Divides Oak aged Yeti Russian imperial stout.
Three Aces is located at 1321 W. Taylor Street in the heart of Little Italy. The BLACKOUT begins on Monday, October 22, 2012 and the special menu runs through November 4, 2012. The menu will only be available for dinner starting at 4:00 p.m. through 11:00 p.m.
Three Aces has been described as “the Italian country side meets the American farm house in Keith Richards basement bar”. Well known for its Michelin recommended food, at neighborhood prices, in a comfortable, cool, rock and roll inspired setting.
